Vineet Singh Hukmani, aka Vineet, singer – songwriter from India who began his music career only in 2020, has achieved the rare feat of becoming the first artist in the world to have 6 of his singles hit number 1 on the European Independent Top 100 music charts in 2021.
He was awarded a certificate of recognition and a digital award plaque from The European Independent Music Network & MEI
Vineet hit number 1 with his single ‘Dreaming out Loud’ in week 5 of 2021, following it up with 5 more number 1’s which were “Can I go Now’ in Week 8 ( which he performed with his kids’ band Avni Vir Vineet) . Then came ‘Jab The World’ hitting number 1 in week 13, ‘So new’ in week 20, ‘I Pray’ in week 24 and now his latest single ‘Turning Back Time’ hitting the number 1 spot in week 31 of 2021.
‘It is a lot of fun and hard work to create songs across genres and to release global quality music for radio stations all over the world every 45 days. It surely feels great to get such recognition and I thank all the radio stations across Europe and their listeners for continuously voting my music to the number 1 slot. I dedicate this to the spirit of being ‘independent’ on India’s Independence day and to God & my family / friends who have believed in me’ said Vineet.
‘We always like to see Independent artists from Europe, USA, Canada and now from India creating waves in the top 100. The European chart is multi genre and very competitive and only the best music reaches the top based on radio airplay and listener votes. We are very happy to award Vineet Singh Hukmani on this rare feat of being the first artist in the world to have 6 number 1 singles on the Euro Indie top 100 in 2021’, said Alessandro Cicioni, Director, European Indie Music Network.
